BANGALORE: As the closet of Bangalore University’s internal politics opens wider, more skeletons are emerging to expose the animosity which prevails among the top brass of the university’s administration.
Special Officer (Exams) Syed Jamal on Saturday took help of Ulsoor Gate police to break open the lock of his office at Central College, after Registrar (Administration) B C Mylarappa had sealed his office after he issued an order to relieve Jamal of his duties. “The police only helped Jamal open his office, which was sealed, after the Registrar (Evaluation) filed a complaint,” a university official said.
Additional Legal Advisor G R Gurumath, who was served a show-cause notice by Mylarappa on Friday, said he would “strongly recommend to the state government to replace Mylarappa as the Registrar.”
Replying to Mylarappa’s show-cause notice, Gurumath stated, “I am sure that the widely publicised so called confidential show-cause notice is an attempt to browbeat me from discharging my responsibilities to ensure the implementation of the court orders regarding withdrawal of degree of PhD to M Venkataramanappa on the ground of plagiarism, for whom you (Mylarappa) were the guide.”
,Gurumath said, “It is true that since inception I have not been functioning from the Office of the Legal Cell, since the cell chamber is designated for a full time Legal Advisor, which I am not, nor interested to be.”
Mylarappa discarded Gurumath’s demand for the recall of the Registrar, as “Gurumath had no locus standi to demand it.” He said, “I have already written to Governor and Chancellor H R Bhardwaj about the all the illegal appointments and irregularities in the university. I will meet the Governor personally on Monday.”
Strangely, amidst all the action, Vice-Chancellor Dr N Prabhu Dev has apparently chosen to stay aloof. He was unavailable for comments.
